Gnomesville: Everything You NEED To Know Before Visiting (Locals Guide 2023)

Since living in Perth I’ve often heard people mention Gnomesville, a place that is inhabited by hundreds, if not thousands of gnomes!  Well with two younger sons, I thought we would see if we could drop in and pay this place a visit on the way back from a weekend down south.

There are even gnomes that go for the dockers!

Well, we were in luck and to be honest it was pretty cool to see! Check out the article below that tells you everything you need to know about Gnomesville south of Perth, Western Australia.

Where is Gnomesville?

Gnomesville is located a couple of hours south of Perth, on the corner of the roundabout junction of Ferguson Road and Wellington Mill Road in Wellington Mill, Western Australia.

It’s probably too far from Perth to justify the drive, however, if you’re driving down to the southwest region of WA, then Gnomesville is a perfect place to visit on the way down or back to Perth.

What’s the parking like?

There is a half-decent car park located behind the gnomes along with some side-of-the-road street parking if need be.  

On the day we went there it was relatively quiet, hence there was plenty of parking though I can imagine that in school holidays it would get quite busy hence perhaps get there earlier or arrive later if you’re concerned about crowds.

What can you expect to see at Gnomesville?

Yes, you sure can!  When I visited with my sons we spent the morning painting a few gnomes before visiting and finding them a home under the bridge.

Final thoughts on Gnomesville

To be honest I wasn’t sure what to expect when visiting, though to be honest I found the whole experience to be fun and enjoyable.  

My two sons had a great time walking around checking out all the different gnomes, not to mention finding a place to put our gnomes.

If you have the time I’d definitely recommend checking it out, especially if you have kids as they would love exploring Gnomesville:)
